About Golden Cap conservation

Carry out meadow and invasive species management on the Jurassic Coast.

Come and help our rangers control invasive species on very important grassland meadows on the Golden Cap Estate. Help to improve the nature conservation on the estate by removing ragwort, himalayan balsam, birch etc. and continue the good work of previous holidays. We'll make time on Sunday afternoon for a walk along the Jurassic Coast to enjoy the spectacular scenery or even have a swim in the sea.
